Bobby's Trip To Seattle

Bobby took a trip to Seattle one week after my trip to Seattle... I know, we should learn to plan better :) Anyway, Jeff got them tickets to the MLS Championship game so he couldn't pass up the opportunity, especially because Real Salt Lake was in it. Lisa Pett told me that going for a soccer game was way less embarrassing than going for Twilight, but that's just crazy talk :)

Bobby served his mission in Seattle and he was able to go see a few things. This is one of the apartments he lived in.

He said that it was red when he lived there so it has been re-painted, which tells you how long ago his mission was, haha

Of course they went to Pike's Market. It was weird seeing his pictures because it was stuff I had just seen myself.

Bobby and Jeff on the Ferry to Bremmerton.

I told Bobby that he had to get some good pictures of my boyfriend (Mr. Beckham) while he was there and I think this is a pretty good angle.

They made some awesome signs to cheer on the boys.

RSL WINS!!!!!!!

They also got to attend the after party which was by invitation only. I guess it pays to have connections. This is Bobby with Kyle Beckerman from RSL.

The Championship Cup

They had a great time and are looking forward to next season, Go REAL!!!

New Moon Party!!

We did it again! We rented a theater for the next installment in the Twilight movie series, "New Moon". It all started way back in April. I told my sister Rachel that I knew someone who already rented a theater for this movie and was already selling tickets. She couldn't believe it because it was 6 or 7 months before the movie! After talking about it with a few people she decided to call the events coordinator who helped us on the last movie. She told her that not only have people already been renting movie theaters for New Moon, but they were already almost sold out for opening day! Of course she went ahead and reserved our theater and that started our crazy 6 month journey of selling tickets and preparing for our private New Moon screening. We had a blast! There is something about watching a movie with a theater full of people you know, or at least know love the series. We ended up selling EVERY SINGLE seat in the house! Which made it even more fun.

The sugar cookies were such a hit last time that we decided to do it again, I know , I look super hot in this picture :)

Don't I make an awesome Bella?

The movie was awesome!!!! I loved it!!!!

We had an after party at my mom's house. It was great to sit and chat about the movie.

My old neighbor Deann Thaxton made these cool cupcakes.

We had a great night and are now looking forward to "Eclipse'', which comes out in June!!! We hope to see you there :)

It's Official: I'm one of Those Girls

I think it's safe to say that if you know me, you know I'm a pretty big "Twilight" fan. Well, I have always thought of myself as a fan but not one of those super crazy chicks who go way overboard. I can no longer think of myself in that category because last weekend I went on a girls trip to Forks Washington. So I have officially joined the crazies. The thing is, it ended up being one of the most fun times I've ever had. Maybe that's because when you go crazy surrounded by other equally crazy people it just seems normal. Plus when your on a girls trip how can it not be fun?

Anyway, we started our trip normally enough, we spent our first day in Seattle. I've never been there so it was really great, we spent the morning walking around Pike's fish market which is an experience in itself, let's just say you can't work one of those booths if your shy. So then we had lunch at the Space Needle which was awesome, a little pricey but totally worth it. Just look at that view.

Me, Rachel, Keri, Julie and Priscilla. Priscilla lives just outside Seattle so she was our tour guide, she also put us up the night we arrived, she was a lot of fun.

My sandwich was about as big as my head, but I didn't let that get in my way.

After lunch we dropped Priscilla off and made our way down to Port Angeles. It was about a three hour drive so we passed the time quoting our favorite "bad" lines from the movie version of "Twilight". If you've seen the movie you know we were not lacking for inspiration. Mostly we made fun of Kristen Stewart's awesome acting. It was really fun.

We saw this sign on the door of a little shop and it made me laugh. See this is what I meant about it not seeming so crazy when you're surrounded by it :)

While we were in Port Angeles we went to dinner at Bella Italia where Bella and Edward have their first date. We all ordered the mushroom ravioli except Keri who doesn't like mushrooms.

After PA we made our way through Forks and down to La Push where our hotel was. It was about midnight when we arrived and it was pitch black outside, so we had no idea how incredible our view was until we woke up the next morning. We knew we were supposed to have an Ocean view, but that could mean you can see the Ocean in the distance. So I was completely blown away when I looked out our sliding doors and the beach was right there. It was incredible, so beautiful, I decided it reminded me of Hawaii except in grey tones. For those of you who are fans we were basically staying right on First Beach.

There was sooo much driftwood, Julie was looking around and randomly stated "You could make a lot of paper with all this wood." I'm still laughing at that one.

Julie and Keri sitting on so much potential paper.

After spending some time on the beach, it was time for the truly crazy/fun stuff. First we stopped by Jacob Black's house where you can see his motorcycle parked right out front.

The treaty line between La push and Forks.

We're here!!

Pretty much every business in Forks had some kind of "Twilight" reference. This one was pretty funny.

Bella's Truck is parked outside the Chamber of Commerce.

We stopped by the church, just for fun and there happened to be a funeral going on, and they asked us if we would like to come in and eat with them. Those Mormon's are so nice :) We didn't stay to eat but it always feels like a little piece of home when your inside a church building.

The Swan residence. It must be so weird for the people who actually live there.

Forks High School. Originally Rachel was doing a cheer pose too, but she changed at the last second so now I just look silly, oh well. I'm sure that was the only time I looked silly on this trip hahaha

The Hospital has a parking spot for Carlisle, I wanted to go in and donate blood because I think that would be funny, but we didn't have time.

Rachel and I Handcuffed in front of the Police station.

That night we made a fire on First Beach but we didn't stay long because there was a big storm rolling in. The storm was crazy, very windy and rainy we didn't get much sleep because it was so loud. I think Julie willed it because she was so worried about a Tsunami. The whole time we were there, she kept making evacuation plans until we finally decided that if there was a tsunami, we were pretty much goners.

It really was a great time, we all had so much fun together, we laughed almost constantly. Thank you so much girls I love you all!!!! Let's plan another girls trip very soon.

A Field Trip and a Birthday

This year I have Milli in a neighborhood Joy School and last week was her very first field trip. They have been learning about community helpers so we took them to the Lehi Fire Station. They loved it and they even got some cute fireman hats to take home.

Lauren got to come with us so she was a happy camper. She gets pretty mad whenever I drop Milli off without her.

Milli and Lo inside a fire truck.

Bobby's Birthday was yesterday, I think he turned 29 (which makes me 21). We had a little family get together for him and the kids got him a new Wii game. I hope you had a happy birthday babe!! We Love you!!!!!!!
